    Ah. The real manufacturer is the wire rope  manufacturer so you should 
follow their advice. My experience with them is to  use a light lube such as 
PreLube 6. There are other applications and suitable  materials so the 
ultimate choice is up to you. That's the nice thing about TT  - you can decide 
whose advice is worthwhile and whose isn't. 
    And - as always - the advice here is worth  what you pay for it - hi.
